ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Warning! When using mains-powered equipment, basic safety precautions,
including the following, should always be followed to reduce risk of fire,
electric shock, personal injury and material damage.
Read and understand the manual prior to operating this tool.
Save these instructions and other documents supplied with this tool for future reference.
The electric motor has been designed for 230V and 240V only. Always check that
the power supply corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate.
Note: The supply of 230V and 240V on Ozito tools are interchangeable for
Australia and New Zealand.
This tool is double insulated in accordance with AS/NZS 3100: 2002;
therefore no earth wire is required.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by an electrician or a power tool
repairer in order to avoid a hazard.
Note: Double insulation does not take the place of normal safety precautions when
operating this tool. The insulation system is for added protection against injury
resulting from a possible electrical insulation failure within the tool.
Using an Extension Lead
Always use an approved extension lead suitable for the power input of this tool.
Before use, inspect the extension lead for signs of damage, wear and ageing.
Replace the extension lead if damaged or defective. When using an extension lead
on a reel, always unwind the lead completely. Use of an extension lead not suitable
for the power input of the tool or which is damaged or defective may result in a
risk of fire and electric shock.

GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
!
!
WARNING! Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to
follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool" in all of the warnings refers to your mains-operated
(corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which
may ignite the dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions
can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way.
Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes,
radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for
outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
f)
If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating
a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the
tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.

!
GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in
personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This
enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f)
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair,
clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or
long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection
facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of dust
collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your
application. The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate
for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any
power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must
be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from
the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow
persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate
the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power
tool's operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f)
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with
sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these
instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to
be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
5) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only
identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool
is maintained.
b) If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its
service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.

OPERATION (cont.)
Vacuuming Liquid
1. Disconnect the unit from the power supply.
2. Release the two motor securing clips and lift the motor from the top of the tank. If
the cartridge filter (with the rubber seal) has been previously assembled, remove it.
Fit the foam filter over the bracket.
Note: Do not use the foam filter combined with the cartridge filter.
3. Remove all dirt and debris found in the tank.
4. Fit the motor with the foam filter assembled back to the tank and secure in place
using the two motor securing clips. Do not use the cartridge filter when wet
vacuuming.
5. Re-connect the unit to the power supply.
6. When vacuuming liquids never fully submerge the end of the hose into the water.
Always ensure only half the end of the hose is submerged in the liquid. This allows
airflow which is needed for the Vac to work effectively. By not allowing airflow,
unnecessary load is placed on the motor which could lead to motor failure.
7. After vacuuming liquids, raise the hose to drain excess liquid into the tank before
turning off the unit.
8. The tank has an internal float which rises with the liquid level until it seats itself
against a seal at the intake of the motor, when this happens the suction is shut off.
When the suction is shut off the motor will develop a higher than normal pitched
noise. Do not continue vacuuming when this happens. Switch the motor off.
Disconnect the power supply, remove the motor from the tank. Proceed to empty
the tanks contents into a suitable drain. Use special care when emptying heavily
loaded tanks.
After completing the job, disconnect the power supply. Remove the motor and empty
the liquid from the tank. Clean and dry the tank and underside of the motor before
storing the unit. Clean the filter, especially after vacuuming sticky liquids. To clean the
foam filter, first remove it from the motor bracket then rinse with soap and water.
Note: When vacuuming liquids always have the foam filter assembled. Failure to
do so may cause the motor to fail. Do not use the cartridge filter when vacuuming
liquids, this will prematurely damage the cartridge filter and will also harm the
motor. Damage caused by incorrect operation will not be covered under warranty.
Blowing
To utilise this function remove the hose from the vacuum inlet and push it into the into
the blower port in the top of the motor housing. Switch the unit on as per usual. This
can be used to clear matter from surfaces and also clear obstructions in the hose.
